AOSC Senior Kelsey Malloy has been named a 2017 University of Maryland Undergraduate Researcher of the Year for her work on improving forecasts of rapid cyclogenesis and hurricane force-wind events. For the past two year, Kelsey has been working with a team of researchers at the NOAA Ocean Prediction Center, led by Dr. Michael Folmer and Lt. Joseph Phillips, to use the latest data from the Himawari-8 satellite combined with analysis techniques developed for use with the GOES-16 satellite. Kelsey's work will be used be used by forecasters to improve the safety of mariners at sea.
This has been a great year for Kelsey as earlier this year, she became a
Phillip Merrill Presidential Scholar. This fall, Kelsey will enroll in the University of Miami's PhD. program working on climate variability and subseasonal to seasonal predictions with Dr. Ben Kirtman.
